CVMA Advocacy Training
Learn how to effectively advocate for the veterinary profession in Colorado!
On February 6, CVMA will hold a day-long workshop to help build the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively advance (or thwart) public policy that affects the veterinary profession at the national and state levels. The workshop is free to CVMA members, including veterinary students and Power of Ten leadership academy participants. Click here for details and to register.
CVMA Media Training
On March 13, CVMA will be hosting a day-long media training workshop to help veterinary professionals build skills for working with media. As an expert in your field, you may be called upon from time to time to deliver facts about animal health topics and general pet care by the media. Speaking to the media becomes more complex if you are addressing potential legislation, crisis situations, or hot media “run-away” stories. For any person who will represent their practice or organization, media training is essential. Click here for more details and to register.

iPhone App Helps Find Lost Pets
The HomeAgain PetRescuer iPhone App has been approved by Apple and is available for downloadin (for free) from the iTunes store for your iPhone, iTouch, or iPad.
Rapidly expanding the network of PetRescuers with technology such as this can help to substantially improve a pet's ability to be found before ever reaching a shelter. A related and equally important goal of the app is to raise consumer awareness about the benefits of microchipping.
Please help us to get the word out about this important development in proactive pet recovery. And thank you, as always, for supporting microchipping as an important preventative procedure for our beloved family pets.
